will be united in concern both at the intolerable situation for the residents of southern israel and the grave loss of life and humanitarian in gaza including the particular impact on children. on the 14th of november, the israeli defense forces began air strikes in response to a sharp increase in rocket fire. hamas and other militant groups responded with other rocket fire. as of today, three israeli citizens have been killed and at least 109 palestinians including 33 women and 26 children -- 11 women and 26 children also killed. we have made clear that hamas have the principal responsibility for the start of the current crisis but also that all sides have responsibilities. we quickly called on israel to seek every opportunity to de escalate their military response and to observe international humanitarian law and avoid civilian casualties. yesterday e.u. foreign ministers condemned the rocket attacks on israel and called for an urgent cessation of hostilities. we have also warned that a ground invasion of gaza could length b the conflict, and erode international support for israel's position
rocket fire directed at israel from hamas-controlled gaza, as well as militants and their supplies. israeli officials say three people are dead, 68 people have been wounded. officials put the gaza death toll at 104 with 860 people wounded. all the while world diplomats constantly are looking for some way to broker a cease-fire. in a little bit, you're going to hear my conversation with one of top negotiators attempting to achieve a cease-fire, the former british prime minister, tony blair. he's here in jerusalem. i spoke with him today. you're going to hear the interview. that's coming up later. we'll also hear from our cnn correspondents across israel as well as in gaza right now. earlier in the day, i went to orbkalon where i saw what was going on firsthand on the israeli side of the border. as soon as we got there, the sirens actually started going on. you could see people running towards shelters. i started running after israeli soldiers demanded that all of us -- our cnn crew, myself, we get to a shelter. usually they have about 30 seconds once the sirens go off before there a
days a year. >>> good evening. there are millions of people in israel and the gaza strip who are spending this night living in fear of rockets and missiles raining down on their homes and neighborhoods as outside parties hurriedly work behind the scenes to stop the exchange fire. huge explosions rocked gaza with one strike killing at least 11 people. israel says the targets were palestinian militants, but several of the dead included women and children. but with palestinians continuing to fire rockets into israel and tel aviv in their crosshairs, israel says it is preparing to expand its attacks. we're on the ground on both sides of this conflict starting with richard engel in gaza. >> reporter: good evening, lester, israel appears to have exceptionally good intelligence about hamas and today was able to target individual militants in their homes, but they're also killing anyone who happens to be around them. this was a three-story house of hamas militants. israel says it's using precision strikes against gaza. >> there were eight people in this house when they were attacked
may be critical in determining which direction israel's going to take in its conflict with hamas militants. despite 30,000 israeli troops massed at the gaza border and tough talk from both sides, there's still a chance for diplomacy. but time is running out. today was the deadliest day yet. israel says it lobbed 130 rockets into gaza, and some reports say up to 29 palestinians were killed today alone, including ten members of the same family. on the other side of the border, air sirens screamed out in several cities. israel says it intercepted dozens of the nearly 150 rockets hamas fired, including two targeted at tel aviv. their shelling is intense on both sides. cnn's anderson cooper witnessed it firsthand. he's been reporting live from gaza city and earlier i was on the air with anderson when a massive explosion took place nearby. watch what happened. >> in that blast we know ten members of one family, also two media centers -- whoa. that was a rather large explosion. that occurred, look out here, i can't actually see where the impact of that was. it's actually set off a numbe
increasingly remote. let's see what happens behind the scenes there. >> i have heard, wolf, israel says if there's not some sort of cease-fire agreed to on behalf of gaza that a ground war will begin soon. what are you hearing? >> reporter: well, that's what the israelis are saying. the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu in his cabinet meeting yesterday made that point. they're not going to wait forever. we do know that there have been a lot of international efforts to get a cease-fire, including an israeli envoy, a special envoy who went to cairo to meet with egyptian officials. the egyptian government, president mohamed morsi has been very much involved in trying to achieve a cease-fire together with representatives from turkey, from qatar. president and the secretary of state, the u.s. president, they've been talking to all sorts of leaders. let's see what happens. i'm only a few miles north of the gaza border right now. it's eerie here. the cafes are pretty much deserted. i was walking along the mediterranean beach. normally there would be a lot of people, it's a beautiful
there is another barrage being fired from gaza into this part of israel close to the israeli border. as i was telling you, this town here on the border is one that does take a lot of fire very frequently. so this is really something that is very commonplace for the people here. >> frederik pleitgen and our crew there hitting the ground just there on the border. new israeli attacks also carried out in the past couple hours on targets in gaza. cnn's ben wedeman is monitoring events this hour in gaza city. he joins us from there. ben, we just saw fred pleitgen hit the ground, and i know it's just as tense there in gaza city. what can you tell us about what's happening right now? >> reporter: well, right now it's relatively quiet. we can hear the israeli drones overhead as we hear all day long, but, of course, just a few hours ago, in fact, 2 1/2 hours ago, we heard three large explosions, and this building behind me which you can't see because the electricity is caught off, got hit three times. in that building there are several things. there were the offices of a television station affiliat
. for the past five days israel and hamas have fired rockets and bombed one another, israeli air strikes have taken a heavy toll on gaza and hamas. right now israel is keeping open the possibility of a ground offensive. they've got 30,000 troopons the border with another 75,000 reservists being called up. now, i want to show you something that played out live on israeli television just a short time ago. watch this. what you're called is called an iron dome. this is egypt's defensive zone system. they're tracking down two rockets. at the end, the small puffs there, that's the signals of success that those intercepters headed off those rockets. so far israel says a thousand rockets have been fired. hamas puts it at about 900. the constant threat has those in israel in fear. >> reporter: there's another attack, another rocket alert going on. we've got to get out of here. >> go, fred. there you see it. a strike in ash colon. we've got the pictures up as fred and our camera crew get out of the way. it's a sign that another strike is coming. can we listen here? >> reporter: and we have the impacts.
but the back and forth explosions on either side of the border between israel and gaza. it is a lop-sided fight right now, the death toll more than a 100 in gaza. with three israelis reported dead. it is being answered by air strikes, many from drones, many aimed inside buildings, inside densely packed neighborhoods. this conflict continues to escalate and could still go either way. fu tonight, with our team on the ground covering the story we begin with our chief foreign correspondent richard engel, good evening, richard. >> reporter: good evening, brian, israel is continuing its air strikes in gaza. in fact, it still smells of smoke here from one not far away a short time ago. a truce could be coming but it seems that the two sides will fight right up until the moment it is signed. one of gaza's tallest buildings on fire. witnesses say it was just attacked by an israeli drone. inside this building are the offices of hamas's television station, the second time in two days it has been targeted by israel, and this time there are casualties. as fire trucks put out the flames, word came from a mil
out. today was the deadliest day yet. israel saying it lobbed 135 rockets into gaza and some reports say up to 29 palestinians were killed today alone, including 10 members of the same family. on the other side of the border, air sirens screamed out in several cities. israel says it intercepted dozens of the nearly 150 rockets hamas fired including two targeted at tel aviv. the shelling is intense on both sides. cnn's anderson cooper witnessed it firsthand. he's been reporting live from gaza city. and earlier, i was on the air with anderson when a massive explosion took place nearby. watch what happened. >> in that blast, we know ten members of one family, also two media centers built -- [ blast ]. whoa! that was a rather large explosion. that occurred -- just look out here. i can't actually see where the impact of that was. it is actually set off a number of car alarms. but that was probably the largest explosion that we've heard just in the past -- really in the past hour. there have been a number of explosions in the past hour or two. but that one -- that one was pretty loud. we a
being fired from gaza city toward israel and we saw israel's iron dome air defense system actually take out some of those rockets in midair. so it doesn't seem like they actually reached across the border into israel and actually land in israel. we've seen explosions really over the last several hours, though not as active as we saw last night, but it was a very busy day here in gaza, a day -- deadly day as well. take a look. [ sirens ] >> day six of the battle between hamas and israeli defense forces. day six of rockets crisscrossing the border, despite efforts to broker a cease-fire, the specter of israel ground invasion is still very real. this strike occurred monday around 2:00 a.m. when we were live on cnn. also two media centers -- whoa! that was a rather large explosion. that occurred, just look out here, i can't actually see where the impact of that was. it's actually set off a number of car alarms but that was probably the largest explosion that we've heard just in the past -- really in the past hour. by daylight, the results of that strike were clear. and this is the results o
whitfield. the last war left 1,400 people dead. now four years later, israel and gaza could be on the brink of a second one. while the world calls for restraint from both. but does this look like either side is holding back? >> okay. [ bleep ] >> that was an air strike that hit gaza early this morning. palestinian tv channel based in gaza says 11 people so far today have died. part of the israeli offensive, taking out the home of a hamas commander. israel defense forces say there was a stockpile of explosives in the house. they also said they blew up palestinian headquarters, and hamas for a second time in two days, hamas aimed a rocket toward one of israel's big cities, the biggest, tel aviv, but the rocket was intercepted. sarah sydnor is live in gaza city. it's 9:00 p.m. there, how are people surviving on this night? it must be at a standstill right now. >> it was very quiet up until seconds before you talked to me. we're hearing booms of air strakes. we have also seen just behind me, four rockets go up, one after the other, and about ten minutes before that, we saw very, very close to u
between israel and hamas, experts say there will likely be a lot more bloodshed before the violence stops. and it's the gaffe that has some republicans shaking their heads. why mitt romney says obama won because of the gifts he gave. >>> good morning, everyone. i'm randi kaye. it is 10:00 on the east coast, 7:00 a.m. on the west. we start in gaza this hour, as people there have to fear death from above. israeli war planes have been relentless in their attacks on targets in gaza. they are hunting rocket launchers, but dozens of civilians have been killed as a result. the latest round of this conflict started wednesday, and there is no end in sight. sarah sidener is in gaza city for us. what are you seeing at this hour? are you hearing or seeing any air strikes? >> reporter: we're hearing drones above, but just five minutes before we started this show, we saw rockets coming out of central gaza, literally a few hundred yards away from us. we could see the rockets going up into the air, and they were sort of white, and then they would disappear and they were pointed, of course, towards israel
in for fredericka whitfield. >>> israel and hamas militants in gaza are fight forgive a fourth straight day with no letup in sight. anderson cooper is in gaza city, anderson cooper is in israel. -- wolf blitzer is in israel. >> israel has said that the israeli air force struck more than 120 targets on sunday in gaza. most notably, the house of a -- the hamas the head of a hamas rocket unit. initially say had said they killed that man. they can't verify whether or not they did -- the local ambulance crews said that as many as ten civilians, women and children were inside the house at the time. the israelis do acknowledge that this man's family was in the house at the time. but they cannot confirm if he was there. israeli -- hitting some local journalists, they had called up some french journalists in advance of the strike, and told them to get out of the building, and they did evacuate, but some journalists did go back inside. there was a response to that, there's been a number of large explosions already this evening and we an fticipate in the hour ahead. >> what's the feeling you get of th
palestinian factions engaged in this military operation with israel. they're trying to get them to commit to a cessation of hostility force a period of 48 hours to allow for a longer truce to go into effect. the palestinians feel they have the upper hand here, and they are saying they will not stop their attacks into southern israel so long as israel maintains a siege on gaza. they want it lifted and they want guaranteed backed by the international community that israel will no longer engage and target and kill senior leaders of the palestinian factions here in gaza. they want all of these demands guaranteed by the international community. for its part israel wants to approach it from a different angle. they want a complete cessation of hostilities for 38 hours for so followed by a -- other concerns they have. the challenge for egypt is to try and close that gap as quickly as possible because essentially everyone here feels that they're running out of time. you have the israelis amassed on the border and palestinian factions still firing rockets and caught in the middle are the 19.6 milli
city toward israel. those seem to have been intercepted. it's not clear how many may have gotten through. a building several blocks from here that houses a number of media organizations, local media and foreign media organizations, a building that was struck on sunday and had largely been evacuated. today the building was struck again, the lower floors of the building were struck again. one member of islamic jihad was said to be killed. that's been confirmed by those on the ground. a lot to tell you about, here's what the day looked like. [ sirens ] >> day six of rockets criss-crossing the border. a spector of israeli ground invasion is still very real. this strike occurred monday when we were live at 2:00 a.m. also, two media centers. that was a rather large explosion. that occurred, just look out here, i can't actually see where the impact of that was. it's actually set off a number of car alarms but that was probably the largest explosion that we've heard just in the past -- really in the past hour. by daylight, the results of that strike were clear. and this is the results of
wednesday. meanwhile militants on the other side have fired more than 200 rockets into israel. israel is massing troops near the border with gaza. they have got 30,000 troops there now and have 75,000 reservists getting ready. at least 42 people have died since the operation began. meanwhile, world leaders including representatives from the united states and the u.n. are calling on both sides to show restraint, but restraint seems to be in short order right now. ourarah sidner is live in gaza with a bird's eye view of the conflict. are you seeing more air strikes right now? >> reporter: absolutely, and in just the past few minutes we could hear the loud blasts of air strikes all night long into morning, 6:00 or 7:00 in the morning, blast after blast after blast and could look into the sky and see rockets coming from here in gaza city into israel. i want to show you a picture that our photographer dan morgan was able to take last night around 3:30 in the morning. he's pointing his camera towards what was the police headquarters. hamas police headquarters when he saw this picture. it wa
on the conflict in the middle east supporting israel's right to defend its country. >> there's no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders. >> meanwhile, heated exchanges from both sides of the aisle on the fallout from the benghazi terror attack and what krorm former cia director general p at a capital hearing. we begin with president obama in southeast asia at this hour. the president began his three-nation tour in thailand at a news conference with the thai prime minister, he defended israel's right to defend itself but expressed concern over a ground war. >> we are fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and work places and potentially killing civilians. we will continue to support israel's right to defend itself. >> chief white house correspondent chuck todd is traveling with the president. good sunday to you. what else do we hear from the president on israel and otherwise? >> a couple of things on israel, he made a plea to allies of the palestinians in particular. the president of e
and counterstrikes are growing deadlier by the day as israel and militants in gaza turn their region into a raging battlefield. the strike you saw on this building in gaza city happened just hours ago. we were told a senior official from islamicee huhhed was killed in that strike. civilians are paying a price as well. officials in gaza say more than 100 people, many of them women and children, have been killed there so far. three israelis have also been killed. our christian amanpour is joining us from jerusalem. first of all, israel is insisting these are surgical strikes intended to hit militant targets and avoiding civilian casualties. we now have reports that 100 people have been killed in gaza, 800 wounded in the past six days. there's a lot of concern about where the civilians lie in all of this. >> well, suzanne, i think any military expert will tell you that it's not possible in a place that is so densely populated, as is gaza. however, israeli officials do tell us they do have a new set of weaponry, more precision weapons than they did this time -- this time last time around when they wen
of the night along israel's border with gaza, but this war won't pause for nightfall, not with 30,000 israeli troops mobilizing for battle. the air war is bad enough. israelis wait to hear this sound. a warning that a rocket is only seconds away. the israeli defense force is hitting back with technology that hamas could only dream of. this idf video shows a missile hitting the home of an hamas leader. the military says the secondary explosions are proof of explosives stored in the building. hamas is claiming its own trophy. the group's military wing says it has shot down a military f-16 and damaged two other israeli aircraft. israel denies losing any aircraft. egypt is trying to stop this war before it is too late. cairo's intelligence chief is spearheading talks to end the violence. but on the border, peace looks like an unlikely prospect. our senior international correspondent, ben wedeman joins us now between the border between israel and gaza. ben, ground war, are we about to witness that? >> reporter: i don't think immediately, don. i think there's still time needed to get the israeli mi
500 hamas rockets have fallen in israel. israeli air strikes have killed at least 90 gazans. nbc's richard engel, stephanie gosk and ayman mohyeldin are in the region reporting the latest from gaza to tel aviv. first richard engel in gaza, what is the latest from your vantage point and on the cease-fire negotiations? >> we are hearing that there are serious cease-fire negotiations going on right now. when you're on the ground here in gaza it doesn't exactly feel that way. there have been many air strikes today, a media building was killed. israel is sort of -- [ inaudible ] on hamas leader or one palestinian militant at a time. sources who are involved in the israeli/palestinian negotiations working toward a cease-fire, these talks taking place in cairo have told nbc news they are serious, that they are making progress and that this is how the negotiations stand right at this moment. the israelis want a two-part deal, a two-stage deal. the first part would be an immediate hostility, immediate cessation of violence, both sides stop attacking each other. that would be unconditional
're trying to prevent hamas from firing rockets into israel. the consequences have been deadly. one air strike caused a residential building to collapse. 11 people died including women and children. the six-day offensive has killed more than 90 people. a survey by a leading newspaper says 84% of israeli respondents back the military campaign but only 30% say they would support a ground operation. u.n. secretary general ban ki moon wants to avoid that outcome. he's repeated his call for an immediate ceasefire. egyptian leaders are mediating truce talks between israeli government representatives and hamas. israel's vice prime minister moshe yaalon says his country will halt its offensive if hamas stops firing rockets and missiles at its citizens in terrorist attacks engineered from the gaza strip seas. for more on this, i talked to our middle east correspondent. first off, there have been many casualties from the exchange of fire. do you think israel will actually launch a ground offensive in gaza as they did back in 2009? >> you have to keep in mind that there will be a general election
. for the second straight day, israel bombed a building housing local and international media. the target of the attack was a commanding member of an islamic jihad group who also had an apartment in the building. meanwhile, hamas continues to send rockets deep into israel. last night, israel's iron dome intercepted two rockets headed for tel aviv. yesterday, israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu had tough talks on twitter writing we are exacting a heavy price from hamas and the terrorist organizations. the idf is prepared for a significant expansion of its operation. in a press gaggle on route to cambodia this morning, deputy national security adviser ben rhodes says the white house's goal is to have nations with influence in the region speak for deescalation. speaking on sunday, the president urged israel to avoid a ground invasion. >> israel has every right to expect it does not have missiles fired into its territory. if that can be accomplished, without a ramping up of military activity in gaza, that's preferable. >> joining us from gaza nbc news foreign correspondent amman mohyeld

conflict between hamas and israel. the last 24 hours have been particularly deadly. 11 civilians killed in gaza city when israeli missiles leveled a two-story home. four of the dead, children. >> as for israel, not letting up with its air assault. right now, representatives from the two sides are in egypt, trying to negotiate a cease-fire. but they're not talking directly to one another. cnn's anderson cooper is live for us this morning from gaza city. anderson, good morning. set the scene for us there. >> yeah, good morning. as you said it has been another day of explosions here and rockets being fired toward israel. i saw at least five rockets being fired over the last several hours toward israel from here in gaza city. which is where most of the rockets are being fired from. and also a number of explosions incoming rockets, or air strikes by israeli forces throughout the day. at least more than a dozen that i've heard over the last several hours. don't have any reports, really, on casualties today. we just had a rocket go off right there. neil, if you can zoom in. you can see the tra
toward the middle of the whole middle east is the nation of israel, comparatively tiny. if you want to understand where the fighting is centered, you have to zoom in even further to a whole different scale to even be able to see what the relevant border is over which this fighting is happening. looking at it in that context, you might ask, what's that giant border right next to this relativity tiny place being fought over? that's egypt. that's the egyptian border right up next to this tiny strip of land where the fighting is happening in gaza. that's why part of why this was such a big deal. egypt and israel shaking hands. thank you jimmy carter. the peace treaty between this important country, the nation of israel. but jimmy carter, it turns out, is not only the only live american historical connection to this critically-important relationship that you see diagrammed there. the president of egypt who is shaking hands with the prime minister of israel and sealing this peace treaty between these countries, this president of egypt, the handshake was in march of 1979. two and a half ye

. we're fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and workplaces and potentially killing civilians. >> we begin this hour with a developing story out of the middle east. let's go to stephanie gosk live in tel aviv. we were just hearing from ayman. it's pretty quiet in his location. what are you seeing there? what about the cease fire and the possibility of that? >> reporter: well, richard, it's been quiet here for a number of hours. there were sirens here earlier this evening. it's the second time today we heard rocket sirens in the city. the second time, the same situation that happened this morning, where they used the iron dome missile defense system and shot down those rockets. that defense system has been incredibly successful for the israelis over the course of the last five days. you know, people on both sides of this conflict looking for some sort of cease fire. they're really not getting it. there's been a steady back and forth of attacks. the deadliest day so far in gaza. more than 20 people were killed, more than 12 in one
as israel and gaza militants launch hundreds of rockets at one another as concerns grow at this hour that they're closing in on an all-out war a. short time ago, the israeli military said its iron dome defense system shot down another incoming rocket bound for tel aviv. joining us now, leeland vittert on the border with the very latest on the growing crisis. >> right now we are waiting to see if the tanks will cross the black abyss that is behind me into gaza where we have watched the rockets fly out of all night as i speak. you can hear the buzzing sound of israeli drones and f-16s as they head in on their bombing sorties trying to search out the rocket crews and hit them with a missile before they can send things raining down on nearly a million israeli civilians in the line of fire. through the afternoon, gaza militants launched countless rocket volleys, firing one toward tel aviv where air raid sirens sent beach goers running for cover. the iron dome system intercepted it before it could hit the city. but it doesn't always work that way. this home video captured a rocket hitting
with just seconds to find safety. others with no protection at all. the air strikes are escalating. israel poised to invade gaza. hamas daring them to make good on that threat. a region is on the brink of all-out war, and tonight world leaders are wondering what can be done to prevent it. our team has been out reporting from the field all day. abc's christiane amanpour is standing by in jerusalem tonight, and we begin with abc's alex marquardt in gaza. good evening, alex. >> reporter: good evening, george. as the death toll soared past 100 today, you could feel the anger growing. gazans are furious over the civilians deaths, but despite the loss of life, they're not backing down. a massive explosion as israeli air strikes pounded gaza today israel, and amidst it all, this, tiny bodies of the dead as they left the hospital today carried through the crowd for their funerals. "we ask all the militant groups to respond to these massacres," this man said. "we shouldn't talk about a ceasefire at all." they were killed sunday by a missile that obliterated their three-story house, killing nine fro
